Two WNY Funding Opportunities!

News

East Hill Foundation is currently accepting grant proposals from nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations that serve the Western New York area through the Foundation’s online grants portal.  This competitive grant process begins with a Letter of Intent Form, which is due on or before May 20, 2019.  All WNY 501(c)(3) organizations are welcome to apply; however, the East Hill Foundation Board of Directors encourages projects that serve basic human needs, such as providing food and shelter for the needy. 

The Foundation identifies and funds innovative, charitable projects designed to enhance the quality of life of the residents of Western New York, primarily Erie and Niagara counties.  Only one Letter of Intent Form per organization may be submitted. For additional information, please contact Michele Schmidt at mschmidt@easthillfdn.org or call (716) 204-0204, ext. 201.

The Health Foundation has partnered with the Brookdale Foundation Group to launch two new caregiver funding opportunities across Western and Central New York!

Agencies that provide caregiving support for people with early memory loss, or agencies that provide supportive services to relative caregivers are encouraged to apply for these two new initiatives.

These new opportunities are offered through the Health Foundation, as are part of two national grant initiatives established through the Brookdale Foundation Group over 20 years ago.

The caregiving funding opportunities are the National Group Respite Program and the Relatives as Parents Program.  A total of ten (10) organizations in WNY and CNY will receive funding for two-years for one of these two programs. The grants are $10,000 for the first year with an opportunity for a second tier grant of $5,000. Click here for more details.
